Artist Iwo Myrin will present his exhibition Memories from the Taiga in conversation with museum curator Brita Täljedal. Admission is free, but seating is limited. Language: Swedish and English.
ZANELE MUHOLI Zanele Muholi is one of the most acclaimed photographers working today. The extensive exhibition presents their career as a photographer and visual activist from the early 2000s until today.
IWO MYRIN / MEMORIES FROM THE TAIGA Iwo Myrin’s motifs are drawn from the taiga, the geographical zone of the northern hemisphere dominated by coniferous forest. In his bronze casts and pinhole photographs of mushrooms, pine needles and moss, the taiga makes a direct impression on his art.
